i slept through the night!! a first since this wretched cold took me. i'm watching a scary movie with brian. it is very silly. today i get to see my papa. i'm meeting him at the hyatt by grand central, then we get to eat fancy dinner, then i go to my writing group at the tea spot in the west village. kelly invited me to lemongrass for karaoke, but i think i might be too sick and broke to go. we shall see. the exciting news is i get my laptop back when i see my father. this will give me access to a wealth of material to make this blog even more lovely and exciting than it already is.
